Before hiking you should know...

  • Even on short hikes, be prepared for changing weather. Carry food, water, raingear and extra layers of clothing.

  • Please use Leave No Trace techniques to help preserve the wilderness:
    • Use pit toilets where available. In other areas, bury waste 6-8" deep and 200 feet from water sources and campsites. Please pack out toilet paper.
    • Pack out everything you pack in including food waste and garbage.
    • Stay on trails to avoid trampling vegetation
  • Do not drink water directly from streams. We recommend boiling water or using a water filter or other treatment that kills or filters giardia and cryptosporidium. Iodine tablets do not kill cryptosporidium.
  • Pets are not allowed on most park trails or any wilderness beaches. This helps protect you, your pet, and wildlife. Pets on a leash (up to 6 feet long) are allowed in campgrounds, parking areas, on roads, and in the following areas:
